In case you have been living under a rock for the past few days the new iPhone 5S is going to be released on September 20th in the US. In Apple’s latest press release they make the bold claim that this phone is “the most forward-thinking smartphone in the world.” The iPhone 5S has a 64-bit A7 chip which basically helps the phone load faster. This phone is thin and lightweight with a built in 8 megapixel iSight camera with True Tone flash and introducing Touch ID. The Touch ID is a new feature that many people have been raving about because it allows the user to securely unlock their phone by reading their fingerprint. This phone essentially has everything you can expect from an Apple computer such as AirDrop, Itunes Radio, Siri, etc. “With up to twice the CPU and graphics performance, almost everything you do on iPhone 5s is faster and better than ever, from launching apps and editing photos to playing graphic-intensive games—all while delivering great battery life.” Apple never ceases to amaze especially with the new M7 motion coprocessor. This coprocessor will measure your motion data even while you are asleep which essentially will save the battery life.
This phone is a portable computer that can fit in the palm of your hand. Now this sounds amazing because it is, however greatness comes at a price. The retail price on a 16GB model is $199 and a 32GB model at $299. The iPhone 5S also comes in several colors, gold, silver, and gray. So if this sounds like a phone you want to have in your back pocket you can order it from the Apple Store. For more information on the press release that Apple issued click here.
